We analyse the $pp \to p \Lambda K$ cross section recently measured at COSY arguing that the enhancement of the production cross section at energies close to the reaction threshold should be due to the $\Lambda p$ final state interaction. We find that the experimental $\Lambda p$ elastic scattering data as well as the predictions from the J\"ulich-Bonn model are in reasonable agreement with the new results on $K^+$-meson production. We propose to study directly the final state interaction by…
